Pristinely Washed and Dried Just Right

Upgrade Your Laundry Room with a New Washer & Dryer

Are you brainstorming ideas to remodel your laundry room? Are you considering replacing your washer or dryer?

Whether you need tips on finding the best laundry pair or how to decide between a top- or front-load washer, we’ll help you cover the basics.

Types of Washing Machines

Deciding between a top- or front-load washer depends on your laundry preferences.

Top-load washers are classic machines featuring a central agitator that rotates clothes throughout each cycle. While the top-load design makes loading your machine easier on your back, the agitation process can cause more wear on your clothes.

Front-load washers use an impeller and gravity to tumble clothes through each cycle while using less water than a top-loader. The front-load design gives you more installation versatility, whether side-by-side or stacked, and you can also add laundry pedestals!

Dryer Basics

Dryers come in two options: gas or electric. Choosing one depends on which type of hookup you have. But if you’re thinking about upgrading to electric or gas, here’s what you need to know:

  • Electric dryers need a 240-volt, three- or four-pronged outlet and an external vent to dissipate heat. However, if you can’t install a vent, check out ventless condensation dryers like heat pump dryers or compact dryers.
  • Gas dryesr are a little heftier. These need a natural gas or liquid propane connection (some models have liquid propane conversion kits), a three-prong, 110-volt outlet, and an external exhaust vent. And if you’re worried about adding to your utility bill, consider pilot-less ignition dryers or dryers with automatic shutoff.

Paired, Stacked, and Compact Laundry Options

Even if you're only replacing one machine, you should consider investing in a washer and dryer set, a stacked laundry unit, or a combo washer and dryer.

A matching laundry pair will have compatible capacities and features, plus a coordinated finish. And you won’t have to worry about under-drying your clothes either!

A stacked laundry unit or laundry center is an excellent option for a compact laundry room. You’ll get the same benefits of matching capacities, features, and looks, but in one appliance!

Washer dryer combos are another solution for a compact space as they combine a washer and dryer into one laundry machine.
